IMHO, I would like to recommend the former one.
(If any *perl-er*s or *python-ian*s are willing to create
alternative cgi scripts :-)

You can download the original script (mirror.cgi)
from "site" module, by the way. (FYI)
# site:  /docs/dyn/closer.cgi
# site:  /docs/dyn/mirrors/mirrors.cgi

I hope Joshua would be very cooperative to this. ;-)

Sincerely,
